Getting anxious for next week (Week in review)


3 runs
3 Chalene Workouts
2 walks

Total of 428 minutes of exercise
3740 calories burned through exercise




At the end of this week (Yesterday and today) I have been feeling BEAT!!  I had been planning a big workout day today, but given the way I feel, and not having any rest days for the last 3 weeks, I have decided to take one.  I even had a nap. I don't think I've had a day-time nap in at least 6 months or more!

I ideally would like to be able to get up and do my workouts every morning, but the only ones that have been getting me up are my runs.  I find the weights are just too easy to put off until evening.  Its not a horrible thing, but definitely something I would like to get a hold of again.


After crunching those numbers above, I was pleasantly surprised!  Even though I didn't work out as much this week, my deficit actually ended up slightly higher because I was able to keep my eating in check ALL week!! Not ONE splurge day, although tonight I'm having Tim Bits, but they fit in my calories!!

I upped some of my weights this week, and I'm feeling stronger in general.  I've also noticed I feel harder in some areas.  That's really exciting for me to feel my muscles again!

Next week's Goals

I am nervous for my weigh-in.  Not necessarily for the number, but more for the feelings that could come along with it.  I am expecting that the number won't be high, but I am hoping for at the very least 5lbs down. I have heard a few times that people don't lose a lot of weight during the first two phases as you are concentrating on building muscle and your body is generally holding on to a little extra water to facilitate repair.

My goals for next week are to "go hard".  I want 3 runs, 5 ChaLEAN workouts, 2 walks and one *Bonus* workout of my choice! Also I want to continue to do well with my calories!!
